I don't know how many of us subscribe to and read this magazine, but I have enjoyed reading this the past two editions.  I believe it is issued 3-4 times a year.  I've been on the mailing list for about a year, but these last two magazines have had some really good material, IMO. 
This month's magazine focuses on family & friend support.  There are articles from people in various stages of this disease and how they've dealt with this disease and everyday life.  Mothers, children, and a feature story from NFL QB David Garrard. 
It's a free magazine, you just have to register on their website.  This should also give you access to view the magazine online.
Comedian Ben Morrison has a column in this magazine.  He's posted his past article on his website:

Is it an online publication because it doesn't look like they ship to Canada? Very sad. I was excited about it.

I enjoy this publication too. Be forwarned it is sponsored by Cimzia so there is a huge ad, but well worth it. There are some great stories about and by CDers. Our own BetaGirl (going way back) had an article last year sometime. I only recognized her name because of the study she posted on here. My DH even got excited when he saw Frank from American Pickers on a cover once.

Larasmom - They also have their issues online. You have to register at the site, and you could try getting the e-version only and see if that works.

dragonfly137927 - I think I received my first issue within a month or two of signing up.

lamb61 - Yes, I believe there is some sponsorship connection to Cimzia and they always have a huge advertisement spread in the middle of the magazine. I was concerned or skeptical about what I would be receiving in the magazine content until I received my first issue...I think when I first signed up it was via the cimzia website. I was happy to find out that it is not just one long advertisement magazine. It is truly stories of crohnies by crohnies. There's no slant in any of these articles to pursue any specific type of treatment or drug.
